Aid For Counties
From U. S. Forests
Congressman Lowell Stockman
of the Second District of Oregon
has Introduced a bill to pay an
nually 2 per cent of the fair val
ue of National Forest lands to the
states for distribution to the coun
ties in which the lands are locat
ed. In speaking of the bill Repre
sentative Stockman said, "The
National Forest lands of the Uni
ted States are generally estimat
ed to be valued at about $800 mil
lion, and they are lands on which
no taxes are collected by the
counties. While the Federal gov
ernment pays to the states, for
distribution to the counties, 25
of all National Forest receipts,
there has been criticism of this
plan, due to the inadequacy of
the funds and also because the
contributions are apt to be least
when prices are depressed and
the need of the counties is the
The Congressman further add
ed: "I believe the bill I am in
troducing would establish a larg
er measure of both stability and
equity of contribution to the
I counties. Each county would
know at the beginning of each
decade approximately the sum it
would receive during the ensuing
ten years from the then existing
National Forest lands. Long-term
county budgets or financial pro
grams thus could be formulated
with a far greater degree of as
surance than is possible under
the present 25 plan."
Representative Stockman ex
plained that he was particularly
interested in this legislation since
the percentage of area under For
est Service administration in the
counties of the district he repre
sents is as follows: Baker 32.05;
Crook 22.73; Deschutes 49.09;
Grant 53.05; Harney 7.83; Hood
River 61.74; Jefferson 13.97; Kla
math 29.56; Lake 18.96; Malheur
.06; Morrow 10.31; Umatilla 19.27;
Union 45.94; Wallowa 56.00;
Wasco 13.73; and Wheeler 15.11.
